To play one of our Murder Mysteries requires no special props or acting abilities, just a willingness to have fun and immerse yourself in the character. Your guests do not need to study or memorize any scripts or other information about the scenario. Each Murder scenario is tailored to your individual needs and a personalized package is created for your group.
The Game is designed so that the individuals who are playing will mingle around asking questions about each other's character, and perhaps, about any other information that the players may have gathered so far. As the Game progresses each player will gather more and more information, and at the end of the allotted time they need to sift through what they think is fact, and what they think is fiction - to make their choice on who they think the true murderer is.
If you have prospective guests who are a bit timid or perhaps a bit reluctant, you can reassure them that they can play their Character as passive as they like. They can sit on the couch and let people come to them, approach each character off to the side or they can even just listen in on other conversations until they get their feet wet and are feeling a bit more comfortable.
Each game takes approximately 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hrs, depending on the number of people playing. Your Group can come dressed up as their character or not, as they wish. We package the Game differently to suit either possibility.
Each game consists of: a Guest List, Rules Sheet, Solution envelope, and the character roles and clues for each of the individuals that will be playing. When you get the package, you just need to hand out the envelopes to your guests. The Host or Facilitator for the party will be able to play as well. They will not know any more about the Mystery than anyone else.
Cost is $12.50 per person, plus $10.00 shipping in the Continental U.S.
There is no maximum number of players, but there is a minimum of twelve required
The Host (or Hostess) can either play the Game, or be the Facilitator
Costume is optional, but it is fun to have someone outside the group dress up as the Dead Guy
Any age can play, however children below 13 tend to lose interest
There is no problem if the Men outnumber the Women, or vice versa
"Your Murder Mystery Party was a complete HIT at our Teacher's Fund Raiser. Was very funny when the person that none of us liked was revealed as the Murderer (don't tell anyone). We plan on contacting you soon for our next party."University of Cincinnati
"We chose your Party Game because we had forty-two people who wanted to play. You promised you could do it, and you delivered. A 'killer' time was had by all. Great job!"Northrop-Grumman
"This was our first attempt at playing a Murder Mystery Party Game. We had twenty two people - sixteen women and six men. No one else we spoke to could do it, but you did. And you changed some of the Names to be more Yiddisha. You have our highest recommendation. Mazel Tov!"United Jewish Welfare Fund
"As you know, our Executive Board can be rather dull. But your Party brought out a wild side in everyone, and we all had a great time. We were talking about the Murder Party for days. At our request - difficult to be sure - you changed the Names to some of our Golf Pros. No one else would have done that. Well worth what we paid. Thank you again."PGA
